There is no average lifespan for brake pads. Especially in Seattle, where you've got hills and wet conditions picking up road grit, sand, cinders, etc. Then there's the question of how hard you brake, what brand of pads (compounds differ in lifespan) and how much you and your rig weigh... The list goes on.
I'd be lying if I said I got 900 miles consistently out of a pair. If it's been wet and gritty, I might go through a pair in 500 miles. During the summer, I might get 1500 on a pair.
